And you thought Dumbo had it bad?
It also doesn’t take into account that low-income communities have fewer supermarkets than fast food joints. In addition to prep time, driving to the next town or across town to the supermarket to buy fresh produce takes time. And for people who work late, the supermarket might not even be open by the time they get out of work. Fast food places, especially in populated urban areas, are open until midnight or later. So price isn’t always the concern. Practical concerns like location and business hours of supermarkets play a huge role in who gets to eat what.
This ignores the prep time that goes into meal #2. For someone just getting off a ten hour shift, going through a KFC drive-thru and getting a fully prepared meal is so much more convenient.
I’d rather cook the meal and feed my body right (for a few days, at that) than support animal cruelty and poison myself.
I’m not sure how buying Tyson chicken does anything to help animals, but I’m glad you have the privilege to be able to make that choice. Not everyone does though.
Um, does anyone actually know the prep time that goes into dried beans? Yeah, they’re cheap, but you better not be too busy because that shit takes time.
Anyway. Blah. Prescriptivism. Blah. Classism. Elitism. Dietary shaming. Blah.
And where on earth do things actually cost that little? That much chicken (even low-quality chicken, forget buying organic/free range/hormone free) is ~$6-7 where I live, milk is $4 a gallon, and a pound of beef is $4.
I’m with Sami. This is utter horseshit. And dry beans? Really? Here let me soak these fucking beans for like 12 hours so we can eat a dinner. And I’m going to walk home with a 10 lb bag of potatoes with all the rest of this shit? um no. While I’m at it, let me pile 8 fucking ears of corn into my tiny refrigerator.
I eat a lot of chicken, not Tyson though, thank goodness. That company treats the chickens horribly, but I digress. I get 1 package like the 2 packages pictured and that shit is like $9 all by itself. $1.96 my pasty white ass. Who the fuck made this?
For his newest project, he began with a vision to profile his favorite hip-hop group, A Tribe Called Quest, and ended up documenting their deep-rooted friendships and conflicts along with the musical history of the group.
